The spirit guiding those who initiated and negotiated the TTIP agreement involved a very strange conception of democracy: trade was elevated above the real values and aims of the EU and its member states. Trade interests predominate in policy related to agriculture, environment, consumer protection, energy and resources. They influence the provision of public services, the negotiation of contracts, and even the legislative process.

Europe has made the fight against climate change a central element of its international policies. Its vision, trajectory and results over the last 25 years have shown that it is able to face up to the challenge. While there have been important errors and contradictions (above all in applying the policy of buying and selling emission permits), the general trajectory demonstrates a positive balance.

What will be the consequences of the attacks on Paris? The short-term results are known: France and the UK will intensify their fight against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, security is tightened everywhere in Europe and borders inside the Schengen zone are controlled again. The question in this article however is what the consequences will be on the longer term.

Economic borders are as powerful as political and military ones, though they are limited by the systemic interdependence of States which, in a world as interconnected as ours is, can produce varied and unexpected outcomes.

Sometimes there are events that can be seen as possible way marks towards this final stage of history: events that only reveal their importance over time and maybe even seemed quite small at the point of their occurrence. When the Magna Carta Libertatum was signed on June 15, 1215 such a way mark was set in history.

I am the first to say that on many great issues the countries of Europe should try to speak with a single voice. I want to see us work more closely on the things we can do better together than alone. Europe is stronger when we do so, whether it be in trade, in defence or in our relations with the rest of the world.

The line of confrontation that seems to be emerging with greater prominence at an international scale is rather that between the liberal-democratic tradition of the West and extra-European cultural traditions that have re-established their guiding role and proudly lay claim to their difference. The world is in flux, a vortex of change, and it is hard to identify the axis around which this turbulence will subside and find a new balance.

Despite continued extraordinary advances in technology, the assumption that living standards continuously advance no longer seems safe. Yet we continue to behave as if we will become ever-richer. We carry on spending tomorrow’s money today, but we have no plan for when that money runs out.

Today, more than ever, this question is vital for a Europe at the crossroads. In fact, is the future of Europe even conceivable without creating such a structure and without the elaboration of a “Grand Strategy” at the height of its potential if not of its ambitions?

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker recently caused something of a stir by calling for the creation of an EU army. His comments were both brief and vague. The idea of a European army is capable of spawning angry, but pointless, debate, serving to shift attention from genuine problems in pressing need of solutions.
